The R-1, Single-Family Residential District is intended for low-density, relatively spacious single-family residential development. The R-7, Medium Density Mixed Residential Planned Community District is intended to permit the development of master planned residential communities offering a mix of single family detached and attached dwellings and open spaces. The minimum district size is two acres and the maximum density is 15 dwelling units per acre. The Comprehensive Plan designates this site as Low Density Mixed Residential. These areas have been developed or are planned for residential development containing a mix of large and small-lot single-family detached dwellings, where commercial and service uses might be finely mixed within residential uses or located nearby along collector and arterial streets. Duplexes and mixed use buildings with residential dwelling units limited to one or two dwelling units per building might be appropriate. The gross density of development in these areas should be around 7 dwelling units per acre. The planned development is proposed to have a single-family detached dwelling, duplex structures, townhomes, and apartment units. The +/- 5.5-acre property is addressed as 650 Keezletown Road and is identified as 72-B-6. Rezoning 628, 648, 658 Virginia Avenue (R-2 to R-8) Public hearing to consider a request from Central Valley Habitat for Humanity to rezone three parcels zoned R-2, Residential District to R-8, Small Lot Residential District.

Infill development and redevelopment must be designed so as to be compatible with the desired character of the neighborhood.
